Aborist Lecture

April 27 at 7:30
Endicott Estate
656 East St, Dedham, MA 02026

As part of Dedham’s Arbor Day, Arborist, Noel O’Shea, will be speaking about his experiences studying trees in the national forests of Ireland.  For more information, contact Diana Bronner at craftydb@gmail.com.

Noel is responsible for the management of all trees under the ownership of National Parks, Ireland. This work includes their preservation and care by qualified arborists, the planting and maintenance of new and existing woodlands, and tree workshops/continuing professional training for his national staff. He has engaged with the leading edge of writers, thinkers and scientists in this area for three decades.

Noel weaves stories of intrigue, mystery and magic with deep scientific and practical knowledge. He will share how he and his colleagues in Ireland plan to harness these ancient stories with modern meanings in order to motivate us to action. Their new social enterprise – Trees Now! – is planting and preserving trees locally, nationally and soon globally for the benefit of individuals, communities and all mankind.
